Promoted by Twitch celebrities, Rust blows all its popularity records

A look at Steam graphics First, it allows us not to fall into the trap of believing that Oxide it was a desert game. Since its official launch in February 2018, the survival game has never dropped below 46,328 concurrent users each month, and had even surpassed the 100,000 concurrent user mark during the lockdown last spring. But the fact is that Oxide it is experiencing its most spectacular attendance since the beginning of the year. He’s even the one who just vacated Cyberpunk 2077 of the peak of weekly sales on Steam and he is the one who has just amassed 244,394 concurrent users, by far the record peak for the game from the studio of Garry’s mod.

A renewed interest that, in terms of Fall boys, Among us and Phasmophobia This past year, unsurprisingly, coincides with his prominence by a number of celebrities from the Twitch scene, including Auronplay, Jacksepticeye, Lilypichu, Ludwig, Myth, Pokimane, Shroud, Sykkuno, and xQc. As of this writing, only three games are more frequented on Steam than Oxide : CS GO, dota 2 and PUBG. This injection of popularity couldn’t have come at a better time for Facepunch Studios, which is still preparing adaptations of its game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as announced on X019. In the latest news Oxide had exceeded 5 million copies sold and enjoys a monthly update every month since its official launch.
